Captain Don's Habitat in Bonaire is pleased to announce the beginning of a major expansion/renovation project for the resort. Understanding the need to continually upgrade and improve the services and infrastructure for the discerning dive traveler of today, Habitat has begun the first phase of a two-phase project.
The first phase will consist of the construction of a new combination dive center, retail facility, classroom, photo facility and technical diving classroom in conjunction with a completely new 100-seat conference facility.
The new facility will be centrally located between the current dive/conference facility and the main office area landward from the Deco Stop Bar and covered seating area overlooking the two dive piers. The new facility will house the dive office, rental area, retail store with exclusive ScubaPro equipment as well as our ever popular logo clothing line along with other souvenirs and sundry items. Capture Photo will also be housed in a new photo area to better serve the needs of our guests interested in both topside and underwater photography.
RecTek Scuba will have its own technical diving classroom for all of the training and preparation needs for our technical diving guests. In addition a new classroom will be located in the facility to serve our guests with beginning or continuing diving education needs. The new conference room will seat 100 persons comfortably in a theater style setting and will have state of the art audio/visual equipment to further enhance the use of the room for business groups wishing to combine business meetings with the quiet family ambiance that Habitat is known for the world over. The conference facility will also have the ability to be transformed into a classroom-style setting or a banquet-style setting with room to sit 50 persons for a private dinner function and with the closer proximity to Rum Runners Restaurant, catering of such an event will be even easier and more efficient.
Phase two will consist of the demolition of the current dive/conference facility and in its place 16 deluxe junior suites will be constructed in two buildings housing eight units each. There will be four ground-floor and four upstairs units in each building with each having an incredible view of the ocean, Klein Bonaire and our amazing sunsets. The units will be similar to our present ever popular deluxe ocean view rooms overlooking our pool and the ocean but will differ on the inside with one king-size bed, sitting area with sofa, chair and coffee table, small kitchenette with microwaves, wet bar, sink and refrigerator. Amenities will include flat panel wall-mounted TVs, telephone, wireless Internet, A/C, full bath with tub, hair dryers, laptop safes and either a covered outside sitting area on the patio or balcony with an unparalleled view of the Caribbean Sea. Completion of phase one is scheduled for mid-December 2008 and completion of phase two occurring late 2009.
"We are very excited about this project and look forward to welcoming all of our guests, both repeat and new guests alike, to join us in this new chapter in the history of 'the home of diving freedom'" said Habitat General Manager Jack Chalk. "While this will change the way Habitat looks in a very positive way, it will not change but, rather will enhance the ambiance and feeling that our guests have come to expect over the past 32 years," he went on to say.
